For 103 years the Lowell Labor Day Festival has been a part of the Labor Day weekend festivities held Sept 3rd- Sept 4th, 2023. The Labor Day weekend in Lowell is a tradition of the state as it incorporated the longest running Labor Day Parade in the state and the Festival has always kicked off the weekend with family fun.
The parade, which has been this year, was always hosted by the City of Lowell along with some family-friendly activities at Liberty Park. Other activities, in the past, were hosted by the Labor Day Festival Committee.
A big part of the parade was the Placards that were carried by volunteers honoring the Fallen Heroes. So the committee is planning to continue the tradition by displaying the Fallen Heroes placards in Beverly Estates Subdivision and Cedar Creek Healthcare Campus on Saturday from 11am – 3pm. Folks are invited to walk thru or drive thru to honor our fallen heroes. There will be a merchandise tent at 18416 Candice Dr.
In the past, the Festival brought the community together with activities for the whole family. A variety of local vendors that provided the best of woodworking and crafts to top notch direct sales. Some of the best food vendors from Indiana and Illinois. There were Kids rides and inflatable attractions as well as three days of live music and Beer Garden. This year, there are activities, but they have changed.
